Best value around, handy tool
9 Apr 2016
By
, Perth
" I bought this to help with planing off a few old doors in-situ. Had a really old version of these once but this one is far better. It is necer going to take huge wedges off timber, but does a really good job of evening out thick edges without a great deal of fuss. Although plastic, seems very sturdy. Definitely a handy tool to have in the box "

Quality Product at great price
14 Jan 2016
By
, Denton
" Having used surforms for years in the workplace and knowing that the smaller ones have a tendency to to be a little flimsey with the constant issue of the blades clipping off (unlike the larger ones that have a screw operated slide clip to hold the blade firmly in) I was a bit resistant buying this one but as the price was so reasonable and I just wanted for occasional DIY use, I took the chance and was extremely pleased with the quality of this one which unusually does have a screw thread slide clip to hold the blade firm and to make the renewal of the blades as easy as a few turns of the twist catch. The plastic body is also far more robust than I had expected. "

Ideal little plane
10 Jan 2016
By
, Highlands
" When that sheet of plasterboard you are trying to fit is that little to big, what you need is a Stanley Surform! It is easy to hold, scrapes away the edge of the plasterboard in a controllable fashion and quickly means you can then fit that stubborn sheet of board. Ideal. "

" I bought this to plane a door frame when fitting a replacement door. It is very useful because you can plane more or less up to the frame corner, unlike block planes. "

" Great value surform, used it to ease 8 cupboard doors and it's still going strong. Found it worked well on softwood, mdf and plasterboard. Easy to change the blade too. I was tempted to get the slightly more expensive metal bodied one but this works fine. "

Stanley surform block plane

, Barrow in Furness,
" An absolute essential tool when working with plaster boards. So much easier to ' smooth ' the edges with the 'plane' than scraping it with a Stanley knife. I would recommend this item to everyone a great item and at a great price too. "

Did the job fine.
29 Jul 2015
By
, Staffordshire
" Bought this because it fits in the hand nicely and to trim the edge of a tongue and groove wooden gate that I'd already put up at the side of my house. Edge is only half inch thick.
With only one use so far and not knowing when I'll need it again or how long it will last, I'm not rating it as exceptional. But it certainly did what I wanted.

" Handy little tool, did the job I needed it for. I already have the larger version, so knew what to expect. The handle is not the strongest and I would go for the metal version if I needed it long term for trade use, having said that I dropped it from a fair height onto concrete and it survived intact. The blades can rust, but still work fine, a few strokes on an odd offcut will stop any rust stains on your work. "
